    It's worth ninety minutes of your life - if nothing else, so you can answer "yes" if someone asks you if you remember the movie in thirty years.

    "The Spectacular Now" is not a straightforward teen film by American standards (even though it's a fairly benign interpretation of what young people go through), but a realistic one, as here the alcohol has ended up in the hands of underage individuals who are driving under the influence. - Victoria Machmudov
